Spay and Neuter Services in Winnipeg at Sherbrook Animal Hospital
If you want to do your part to protect the pet population and help your furry friend live a longer and healthier life, then our veterinarian in Winnipeg recommends that you spay or neuter your pet. Once your pet reaches about six months of age, we can perform this quick procedure right here in our office and your pet can typically return home with you the very same day.
Benefits of Spaying Your Dog or Cat
During the spaying process, our Winnipeg veterinarian removes your female dog or cat’s uterus and ovaries, which eliminates their heat cycle. This means they’ll be less tempted to prowl the neighborhood to satisfy their ‘urges’ that can result in unwanted litters of pups or kittens. We advise pet owners to schedule an appointment to spay their dog or cat as soon as possible, as this procedure can prevent an array of potential health problems such as mammary cancer and uterine infections such as pyometra.
Benefits of Neutering Your Dog or Cat
As with females, having this quick in-office procedure performed as soon as possible is wise. Not only does it curb their tendency to prowl about looking for females in heat to mate with, but it can prevent quite a few serious conditions in cats and dogs. Removing the testes eliminates the risk of them developing conditions such as testicular tumors or cancer. Furthermore, neutering your pet reduces their chances of experiencing perineal hernias, prostatic hyperplasia and prostate disease.
Are There Risks Associated with Spay and Neuter Surgeries?
As with any type of medical procedure, there are a few potential risks associated with spaying and neutering surgeries. However, this is the most common procedure performed by veterinarians and the incidence of complications is extremely low. Our vet will give your pet a thorough examination prior to beginning the surgery to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia and have the procedure safely. In order to further minimize the risks of complications, you will be asked to keep your pet calm for several days so the incision at the surgical site can properly heal without rupturing or getting infected.
